Default onan restoration

Hello, I was referd to your web site by the people at cummins/onan. It looks as though if anyone can help me it will be someone affiliated with this web site.I bought this old generator, it ran well, sounded good. It looked bad so I started to clean the mud-dober nests out and replace some wire that looked bad. Well now I can't get spark from the ignition.I'm sure it's something simple i'm not seeing. The unit is an Onan 3.05 ck 3R 1T Mfg. date 7-31-52. I'm also going to need some help general matinace as I know very little about this unit as all the books on it are long out of print. I would welcome any contact with someone who would like to help me out Thank You Rodger Fairfield.....P.S. I have photos but I'll what till someone wants to see them beforI send them.
